Time is fair to everyone, it depends on what you do with it. Time lost is gone for ever .


As fast as the seconds could be 

It's giving equally

As slow as the minutes and hours could be 

It's distributed without partiality 


I think time is unfair 

Why not given us more extension ?

Why not slower than it is ?

Why not stop ticking while we are asleep? 


Yes time is cruel 

Some are sick, yet it couldn't wait 

Some are weak, still it considered them not

While others are slower in pace 

No ! It wouldn't wait 


But ,could time be unfair ?

If time were to be man 

It will stop for ever 

If time were to be man

Its work wouldn't be achieved


Time will be disappointed 

Should its protocol be bent.

Time won't be regarded 

Had it been set in accordance to man scheme 


If you can't fly, run

If you can't run, walk 

If you can't walk, crawl 

Stangnacy is walking dead 

Don't be stagnant 


Slow and steady wins the race 

Time keeps ticking  and unrelenting

But you have your own time 

It will never pass you by .
